My computer's graphic's cards are bad, but they are built in into the motherboard! Would I have to buy a new motherboard, or should I just buy a new computer overall? Also, could I use a VPN to block excessive ads? My Ad blocker is not working and I've tried many of them, but if a VPN could help me block ads, how would I go about setting one up myself? I don't really wanna pay for one!

Could you please tell us the exact make/model of the computer?

Where are you seeing the ads? If you are already using AdBlocker, try this:

No, if your onboard graphics are going bad, you could just buy a cheap replacement:

Though you'll have to make sure you have a free PCIe slot and enough room for your computer (this WON'T work for laptops)

Alternatively, have you contacted the manufacturer about the computer's warranty?

If it is a laptop and isn't under warranty, it'd probably be cheaper to buy a new one than to replace the motherboard.

Your post is a little confused.

What are the symptoms of the computer crashing? Any error messages? And what makes you so sure that the graphics hardware has "gone bad"? That would be quite unusual; some software problem is far more likely.

(The business of Ad blockers is a completely different question, so let's forget that for the time being.)

Both the crashing AND the apparent ads could be some type of malware. Restart in Safe Mode, Install, Update, and run Malwarebytes. Remove all it finds. Update and run your antivirus program. If one or both removed items, rerun both to be sure. Restart in normal mode.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
